Inside the Hearing Machine: Beethoven on His Broadwood is the engaging recorded outcome of a multi-disciplinary project from fortepianist Tom Beghin and collaborators at Belgium's Orpheus Institut. Inspired by evidence that Beethoven's Broadwood piano was fitted with an amplifying “hearing machine” to help counteract the effects of his increasing deafness, Beghin here performs the composer's Op. 109, 110, and 111 sonatas using a reconstruction of that piano and the machine, making for a release which is both historically significant and musically and sonically unprecedented.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
